I have a Little Red Riding Hood cookie jar that has McCoy on the bottom. I have had many strong opinions both directions regarding if it's real or fake so how do I know and if it's real how do I prove it? ?

Answer:

I am sorry to tell you that your cookie jar is a fake. McCoy did not make any Little Red Riding Hood items. The genuine LRRH was made by Hull Pottery. It is sad that copies were made marked McCoy, it's very confusing to many.
